    As most of us know--one of Eric Holder's under deputies (AG of the United States)--sent out a memo--stating that the DEA was to lay-off of states with medical marijuana approval. Medical marijuana dispensory's exploded in growth in Colorado and in many other states. A couple of years later--the DEA sent out notices to medical marijuana dispensory's in California and Colorado that if they were within 1000 feet of schools--they are to close immediately within 30 days--or their place of business--usually a commercial rental space would be seized by the Federal Government. Hundred's of thousands dollars in investment into these dispensory's was lost. In Colorado we already had state requirements on the location of dispensories as far as distance requirements from schools--(just not a 1000 feet.) The federal requirement closed up shop for many--and now they're showing their anger at the Obama administration.

    16 medical marijuana states most of them considered swing states--and states that Obama must win for reelection. Not a good sign right now.

    It doesn't look good for Obama. It is very well known in Colorado what this administration did to legitimate businesse's--who followed all state regulations--and then were thrown a curve ball by this administration.

    So in answer to your question--Romney never betrayed them--Obama did.

    Unless Romney comes out in favor of medical marijuana, there's no chance of Romney getting the pothead vote.

    Whether or not Obama "betrayed" them doesn't matter, because there's still a better chance of reform under Obama than Romney.

    It's like saying Labor is going to vote for Romney because of Keystone. It's pure fantasy. No matter how bad Obama is on these issues, he's still better than Romney, or any other Republican.

    The potheads probably won't vote. They'll forget what day it is. If you want them getting to the polls, tell them that munchies will be served at the polls.
